CAS: And the day came....


Good morning!  We have got another fun challenge for you over at Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sponsor for the week is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, so in addition to the sketch we would like to see a clean and simple card.  Sounds like a fun challenge, right?!

I decided to use white with cream accents.  I did a bit of scoring, added a vellum strip topped with a banner, followed by a layered sentiment, and embellished with a felt flower and pearls.  I am liking the white/cream combo for a change of pace.  (I had a hard time getting a good photo...I was trying to capture the detail of the scoring and the vellum.  Does anyone have any tips on photographing white cards?  I would love it if you would share your knowledge...thank you!)

Sentiment: Verve Stamps                                                                                                              
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black                                                                                                      
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Vellum
Embellies: Handmade Felt Flower (PTI Vintage Cream Felt), The Paper Studio Pearls
Extras: MFT Royal Rose Die-namics Die, The Cat's Pajamas CutUps Die (leaf), Spellbinder's Nestabilities

I hope you will head on over to the TMS blog to check out the rest of the DT's creations...it's a great line-up!  Give the sketch a try for a chance to win a prize from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps....

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

I came to see what the sketch was and saw your card. I had to come tell you how spectacularly beautiful it is. I love the elegance of the white/cream combo, and the sentiment with this beautiful flower is perfect. It also alludes to our own blooming, and I love that. Fantastic card.

I have NO white card photography skills - my best hint is to use a black background, but I find I still need to leave the photo pretty dark to show the details.
I absolutely love all the texture on your card - felt, vellum, pearls, scoring - it's so pretty, and the quote is amazing :)
